Question about Philips 170S4FB 17" LCD Monitor
This monitor is about 3 years old and has worked fine for all this time, but last week, the screen started flashing on and off for couple of days and then went completely blank. Now any time I swith it on, the screen stays blank and the power button flashes (weakly) for about 5 seconds at 20 second intervals.
This is the way how to examine
what's wrong with your LCD monitors. After you turned it on and the screen stopped working, you have to check that if you can see the image on the screen or
not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best
angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or
any image, there will be a minor problem. This is because of the lamps inside
screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. If you cannot
see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you
have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It
may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board
because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a
technician to do so.
Hope this help!! If anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know.
